My background is in business where I previously enjoyed interacting with customers and learning new ways technology could help people better their lives. Life took my family and me on a new adventure, and we moved to Wisconsin which then led us to become part of the Aquinas family. My career changed presenting me with the pleasure of working with our school families in the central office. However as I saw the children excitedly going about their busy school day, I realized I wanted to be a part of that world with them. I went back to school to obtain my teaching certification in business and technology. Now my students are my customers, and we get to discover different ways to use technology for learning, creativity and exploration! As A bonus of also being the school librarian, I get to read books to the children and help them check out the many wonderful books we have in our library making every day an adventure!
The computer lab gives students access to desktops, ipads and STEM technology such as Lego Wedo 2. 0. Our school library is filled with non-fiction books about religion, animals, outer space, biographies, geography, poetry and more while our fiction section includes fantasy, mystery, graphic novels, comedy, adventure and much more.
I have two children in the Aquinas Catholic School system. I live with my family in Onalaska where we are active members at St. Patrick’s Parish.
